Senate Rejects Bill to Repeal Net Neutrality

The Senate voted today, 52-46, to reject a Republican-backed bill to repeal “net neutrality” regulations. These regulations forbid Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from giving preference to certain sites over others, for instance by allotting more bandwidth to favored sites to improve their speed. President Obama has vowed to veto any bill that would repeal the regulations. Verizon, together with other internet companies, intends to take the matter into court.
